Julia Louisa Dumont

DUMONT, Julia Louisa, author, born in Waterford, Ohio, in October 1794; died in Vevay, Indiana, 2 January 1857. She was the daughter of Ebenezer and Martha Carey, who were among the earliest settlers of Marietta, Ohio. Her mother was herself an author, having published a book entitled "The Mountain Mourner." While Julia was an infant, her parents returned to their native state, Rhode Island, and after her father's death she accompanied her mother to Greenfield, Saratoga County, N.Y. She attended the Milton academy, taught school in 1811'2, and in the latter year married John Dumerit, afterward a well-known citizen of Indiana. She went with him to Ohio, and in 1814 to Vevay, Indiana, where she spent the rest of her life, becoming eminent as a teacher.

Mrs. Dumont was the earliest woman of the west whose writings have been preserved. She contributed largely to western periodicals, both in prose and verse, and published a collection of her writings, entitled "Life Sketches from Common Paths" (New York, 1856).

Her son, Ebenezer Dumont, soldier, born in Vevay, Indiana, 23 November 1814; died in Indianapolis, Indiana, 16 April 1871, was educated at Indiana University, but was not graduated, and, after studying law, was admitted to the bar, and began practice in his native town. He was chosen to the legislature in 1838, where he was speaker of the house, was treasurer of Vevay County in 1839'45, and was for many years president of the state bank. He fought in the Mexican war as lieutenant colonel of the 4th Indiana volunteers, distinguishing himself at the battle of Huamantla.

He was an elector on the democratic ticket in 1852, and again a member of the legislature in 1850 and 1853. At the beginning of the civil war he became colonel of the 7th Indiana regiment, and served with distinction in 1861 at Laurel Hill, Rich Mountain, and Carrick's Ford. He then reorganized the regiment for three years' service, and commanded it in the action of Greenbrier River on 3 October under General Reynolds. He was made brigadier general of volunteers, 3 September 1861, was engaged at Cheat Mountain on 12 September and commanded the 17th brigade of the Army of the Ohio in January 1862. He attacked and routed John Morgan at Lebanon, Kentucky, on 5 May 1862, and in October of that year commanded the 12th division of General Buell's army. On 28 February 1863, he resigned his commission on account of failing health, and was elected to congress as a unionist, serving from 1863 till 1867. General Dumont was appointed governor of Idaho a short time before his death.
